An apparently headless Allison leading up El Farol...

Description 

Named after the scrumptious New Mexican food restaurant in El Rito and nearly as good as the #2 combo plate with red chile, this route goes up the middle of the Front Porch on increasingly steepening rock. The crux comes just past the fourth bolt with a sequency finger slot layback of sorts.

Location 

This is the middle route of three on the Front Porch. A few moves up a detached flake gains a great stance to clip the first bolt.

Protection 

4 bolts to shared anchors with Into the Gayle. You can clip the last bolt of Into the Gayle (recommended) to add a fifth bolt to this route and protect the move over the upper bulge.

Moderate climbing until the fourth bolt. Making the move past the fourth bolt is definitely the crux. Less sustained than the neighboring routes.
